for the call. abby is on the phone from leesburg, virginia on our republican line. caller: i was just calling to say i agree with the last caller that we do have quite a bit of standstill because people are mostly focused on the politics of just polarizing the different parties than actually agreeing to compromise. however, i do appreciate some of the social issues, specifically abortion, that they don't compromise as much. not every issue needs to be such a hard-line. host: thank you. twitter --ion if you are listening on c-span radio, we are talking about congress, expected to wrap up business today, recessing for the november elections and then back for a busy lame-duck session. mike has this story -- is more from the democratic leader nancy pelosi of california.
